If you experience anxiety, a dental phobia or any medical condition that may inhibit you from getting treatment, it may be worth seeking out sleep dentistry options in Perth. We can explain the sedation options available, how they work and what most suits your treatment needs. Contact the team at EVP Dental to see how we can help and to learn more about the sedation dentistry services we offer in our Perth clinic.
Oral sedation is usually administered in the form of a tablet or liquid that is taken an hour or so before your upcoming dental treatment.
Prior to your dental treatment, we will assess your medical history to determine whether oral sedation may be suitable for you.
With no lasting side effects and a quick recovery after completing treatment, happy gas is a safe and common option during dental treatment.
Happy gas works by creating a conscious and dreamlike state that numbs any pain and allows a patient to continue communicating with the dentist throughout treatment. It may cause a slight tingling sensation and general numbness through the body, but it is uncommon to experience any pain at all.
Sleep dentistry is an effective sedative that allows patients to be treated in a relaxed, semi-conscious state. Unlike a general anaesthetic, patients under IV sedation remain partially conscious throughout their entire treatment. In what may feel like a ten-minute nap, patients can receive the dental care they need with very little recollection if any, of the procedure.
IV sedation is provided at our practice in East Victoria Park by anaesthetist, Dr Christine Troy. Dr Troy administers and then monitors patients throughout the treatment. Ask the EVP Dental team about sleep dentistry in our Perth clinic when you book your appointment, or call 08 9470 3944.
General Anaesthetic is a sedation option commonly used for dental implant treatments and tooth extractions.
If you require general anaesthetic, please advise our practice in advance so that we can organise your treatment to be provided at South Perth Day Surgery by our qualified anaesthetist.
Under general anaesthetic, patients remain unconscious for the entire duration and only wake up after treatment has been completed.
Sleep or sedation dentistry refers to the use of sedatives to relax a patient before and during their dental appointment. Sleep dentistry is generally used for patients who experience anxiety, a phobia or medical condition that may prevent them from seeking and/or receiving dental treatment.
Sedation dentistry at Perth’s EVP Dental is more affordable than you think. In fact, if you have private health insurance with hospital cover, have served waiting periods and haven’t exceeded yearly limits, you may have little to no out-of-pocket costs for dental treatment under general anaesthesia in hospital. For patients without hospital cover, IV sedation at the practice may be an affordable cost alternative.
You can also enjoy the comfort of knowing you won’t remember much, if any, of your treatment. The cost of sleep dentistry services in Perth varies depending on the type of sedation used, the treatment duration and the amount of dental care required. If you’d like more information, contact us today.
Sleep dentistry may be a suitable sedation option for patients who require extensive dental treatment or multiple treatments in a single appointment. For patients with pre-existing medical conditions, such as asthma or other respiratory issues, sleep dentistry may not be suitable. When you visit EVP Dental, we will comprehensively assess your medical history before recommending the most suitable sedation option for your treatment.
